Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

President G W Bush expanded entitlements with Prescription Drugs under Medicare.

This was the greatest entitlement expansion since Medicare was passed, which the Republican opposed in 1965,

Republican party is the party for the rich it would seem.

Why are they still here regardless. According to you, they would jump ship to save a few % in corporation taxes.
So why are they still here?
Warren Buffet starting dumping and I mean dumping his shares in American companies last month. Just wait-if these companies in the United States have not went international/global, they will be done. Companies like KFT, PMI, T, MO they are all playing on the Global stage. You can't count on America anymore.

At least we're in good company. They also pulled the race card on their former Democratic president, Bill Clinton, when he and Hillary got in their way.
At least they aren't selective about who they call racists when it serves their purpose.
The problem is yahoos who believe them.
To prove my point, I would like every liberal on here to respond:

A conservative saying Obama is "light-skinned enough and doesn't talk in a negro dialect if he doesn't want to" and that "he's the first mainstream African-American who is articulate, bright and 'clean'" as Reid and Biden so awkwardly put it.

Truly. Imagine any conservative saying that.

I'd have no choice but to agree with liberals that some conservatives are racists if any conservative made those comments.

So why did Biden and Reid get a pass?

Any liberal's response would be appreciated.

Good thing for Harry Reid and Obama, himself, that he is actually more dark-skinned than light-skinned.
It has worked to his advantage. Just look at Lily. That's all she sees.
lol...I don't understand why none of these loony left wingers take offense to the "servant" phrase Clinton said.

Agree but doubt Hillary as next Demo candidate.

I didn't say that. You did.
It just seems the civilized world is watching these horrors unfold and wringing their hands.
Same in Rwanda and Darfur. I don't understand why something more can't be done by the collective global community when these kinds of atrocities occur. I wish someone were smart enough to know.
That's what I said.
Even the atrocities commited in the gulags in North Korea, the civilized world looks the other way without even so much as shining a continual spotlight on it and condemning it.
We can't even get our heads around the human atrocities taking place in North Korea. Political and cultural demographics is a good excuse, but the civilized world is just too disinterested to care.
That bothers me greatly.
Ok, so what do you think is the solution to these civil wars?
Rwanda and Darfur are in Africa, no one gave a damn because they're black and there's no oil. We can't be the referee in all civil wars around the world. They have to fight it out themselves.

Because they are old and everyone realizes that there was no mal intent.

You posted what I have been thinking. I know six member juries are common for civil and misdemeanor cases but I've never heard of one in a felony case. But, then again, Florida does seem to march to a different drummer.

I think 9/11 was Not George Bush fault, in retrospect signs were there but mistakes were made.
Bush was no a racist and did get prescription drug for Medicare.
I am not against all republican all the time.

It would seems that you find nothing positive about President Obama and Democrats.

If all you said was "Okay", then that would have been fine. You want to make this about obama. Obama just happens to be the guy with the power right now. I'll still be bitching about these tactics if they are happening in the next presidency no matter who is there. So quit acting stupid.

This administration is in for a rude awakening when the hens come home to roost. Holder and perhaps even Obama will not get away with breaking the law and trashing the Constitution.

Obamacare hasn't even sunk in yet. A new poll done recently said 4 out of 10 Americans think Obamacare has already been repealed. Boy, talk about a rude awakening in 2014 when they get a letter from the IRS!

Hillary will be lucky if she lasts to the last debate in 2016. The baggage of Benghazi and Obamacare cannot keep her afloat.

No one likes to be lied to. Not even liberals. You're just in the minority of the minority.

Not at this level and to this degree under this much suspicion with so many documented lies and stonewalling by so many.
Everyone expects a certain amount of "spying" and "targeting" goes on under any administration. Bush looked into two major liberal organizations but Clinton holds the record - and no one even blinked an eye even under Clinton.
It's very different now, Homer. I'm sorry to have to tell you the obvious.
How do you know?
